I agree with George
Orwell when he said, "the most effective way to destroy people is to deny
and obliterate their understanding of their history." For example, about
520 years ago, a European empire conquered almost an entire western
hemisphere. But it was not just a simple case of one nation coming in
taking over politically, this was complete hegemony of one nation over another.
The conquerors came in took most of the wealth, told the natives to stop
talking weird, in some cases raped the females, and to complete the amazing
brainwashing told to change their religion. That European empire, Spain,
succeeded almost like no other. Today most people of Latin America forgot
their native language and follow the religion brought to them by the
conquerors; most of this people now Speak Spanish and follow
Christianity. That is complete destruction. It has been accomplished by a
Eurocentric view of world.
